Afterthought : You might try with the DSDT attached to Post #4 here.
Ah crap, just saw this now after I finished installing Yosemite (Yosemite installed on the computer super easily, didn't have to change any flags or anything). Since I'd rather have Sierra than Yosemite, I'll try this.

Thanks for your help.

No other ideas.

Sadly, after following all of those steps, it still did not work. The USB ports still stop working.

If anyone else has any other suggestions, I would be happy to hear them. If not, I guess I'll stick to Yosemite.

Solved!

I was able to get Sierra working. I used an external HDD to install and that seemed to do the trick I guess.

Hey,

Sorry, I don’t think I can help you with this. This was awhile back and after doing that there were so many problems that I actually gave up and eventually bought a Mac because I ran into so many driver and kext issues that it wasn’t worth it with this machine.
